La table du 18

Restaurant at Tours-sur-Marne

If you’re looking for a restaurant just a few minutes from Epernay that wilL provide an unforgettable culinary experience, be sure to check out “La Table du 18“. Personally, I’m a huge fan of this restaurant and go there regularly.

The staff always welcomes you with a smile and goes out of their way to make sure you have a wonderful time. The dishes are flavourful and generous, featuring quality fresh ingredients that showcase French cuisine in all its best. The setting is also very pleasant, with an intimate and comfortable atmosphere.

One of the things I love most about La Table du 18 is that the menu changes regularly. This means you can go back frequently 😉

At the helm of the kitchen is Chef César, who skillfully orchestrates each dish. He offers quality traditional French cuisine, with delicious dishes that highlight local and seasonal products. The kitchen is completely open, allowing you to see him at work and whetting your appetite with the delicious aroma of the dishes coming out of his kitchen.

Tip: be aware that La Table du 18 is in high demand, so it’s essential to book your table in advance to guarantee a spot.
